Ollie Ayrton - The Wizard of Oz

Last Days! | Ollie Ayrton | The Wizard Of Oz

Ollie Ayrton – Last Week!

Ollie Ayrton has his amazing sculptures on exhibit in Gallery One. For The Wizard of Oz fans it’s a must see!

 

An emerging artist who lives and works in Canberra, Ollie trained at the ANU School of Art from 2008 to 2001. He is currently an artist and tenant at the Australian National Capital Artists (ANCA).

This exhibition will be the artists’ first solo show.

“For over 75 years this story has given faithful service to the Young at Heart; and Time has been powerless to put its kindly philosophy out of fashion”. – Ollie

 

 

The artist has worked with life models to create truly lifelike characters inspired by the classic film The Wizard of Oz. It is the culmination of two years of highly disciplined and rigorous work.

This truly striking display of works is something not to be missed!

Eryka Garbutt | Artist Talk – Waste Not

Join Artist Eryka Garbutt for the last week of Waste Not…..

Mixed Media Artist – Eryka Garbutt is known for her marvellous mind and for finding new ways to reuse or recycle materials in her many art forms.

Pendant | Cutlery | Eryka Garbutt

This is a wonderful opportunity to see a more focused body of work by the artist, utilising materials often dismissed.

Recycling takes materials such as plastic, paper, metal, and glass and breaks them down so that they can be made into a new product. Up-cycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful.

Re-purposing is to change (something) so that it can be used for a different purpose. There is a fine line between the three and often they just merge. – Eryka

Works on show include Pendants made from Cutlery, Sculptures made from household items and Wall Art from Toilet Rolls.

Lady In Not So Red | Toilet Rolls | Eryka Garbutt

Eryka will be available at the Strathnairn Gallery this Saturday 22nd April throughout the day to speak about her creations and artistic processes.

This is the last week of the exhibition.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see Eryka’s latest creations.

The Shop at Strathnairn Arts Gallery is open Thursday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm, the Juice Cafe situated within Strathnairn Arts Gallery is open Thurs 10 – 4; Fri 10 – 4; Sat 8.30 – 4; and Sun 8.30 – 4.
